We're getting ready for a busy weekend, starting with a day of errands downtown with the beasts today, then all-day training on Saturday hopefully followed up by Sunday morning SAR practice with Loki. I haven't done SAR with him in months. I hope he knows what to do!
Here are a few random photos to hold me and Mr. Wild Dingo over through the weekend.
Tree farm walk. In the background there's a view of a very expensive estate. I think it is actually on the same road as our home but you can't see it from the road. I've walked close to it before and can catch glimpses of the green grass that Loki and Juno are dying to get their paws on. I've heard the person has a stable of 40 cars. Mountain gossip. You gotta love it!
"Hey Handsome, why don't you and me make a break and bee-line for that lovely estate of grass back there."
"Princess, I just do what mom tells me. I'm sorry. I can't help it. It must be in my DNA."
Here's a view I never get tired of. Two pals, side by side:
And close up the jodhpurs sway in the wind and Loki's apple bottom steadily stays by her side.
"Come-on Loki, show me your adventerous side. Let's blow this popsicle stand and find some real action."
"Princess, this here piece of grass smells adventerous enough to me!"
Rules are rules at Wild Dingo: no crossing doorways or gateways unless otherwise told. Loki never disobeys this rule. Juno? She's very good at forgetting it. But its my own fault. I can't help but laugh instead of correct her when I see her innocently step out and gaze her head side to side with her open mouth smile as if she's done nothing wrong. Tresspass first, ask forgiveness later. That's her training mantra.
"I'm waiting Mom. And I'm watching Princess for you too. Just in case."
"Retardo, did you take your anti-delusion medicine today? Like you're the boss of me. Um, not."
"Don't hate me 'cuz I'm beautiful."
"I see you Big Boy!"
Resting up for the weekend. I'd love to say Loki does this pose out of love, but truthfully, he'll do anything to be comfortable. But Juno tolerates it because she actually loves him.
"Possession is nine-tenths of the law, one tail of a husky."
"Keep dreamin' Big Boy."
Have a great weekend everyone!
